As for a shotgun not being much of a deterrent, I would argue, very strongly, otherwise. Regardless of what the tyrants have, a potential victim with a shotgun is FAR more dangerous than one holding a protest sign.

And finally, saying the right to bear arms is only for muskets is like saying the right to free speech is only applicable to street corners and newspapers.


So are you suggesting that people should have weapons in every form they want? Should the average citizens be permitted to drive a tank, operate an F16, and maintain a nuclear arsenal just in case the government becomes tyrannical.

As for your argument that the shotgun is more effective, if you look at the countries where dictatorships have recently been faulted the person in the middle of the square has been far more effective at toppling governments that shotguns, see Egypt, and other countries in the Arab spring.


Yup, because the arab spring didn't have the backing of a bunch of dudes with AKs.

And if you wanna buy an F-16, have at her. And there are lots of folks out there with tanks and other fighter aircraft as well.

And if you read the papers, you have probably read that you can probably get your hands on nuclear stuff right now anyway..... that I am less cool with, but whatever, I'd rather go that way than spend the $$$ on tracking down every break action 20 gauge grouse gun in Canada. That is a complete waste of resources....

Ever notice that the only real mass shootings happen in gun free zones? You think that banning a bunch of stuff stops it's illegal use? Worked really well for Marijuana.

This could help immensely..considering the only reason the AR is restricted is because of it's "look"...
They reclassified it because it is similar to the AR10 and not the AR15.. :dubious:


Well shit, I'm getting one.

Id sign but I'm getting a message on the screen "Service Unavailable" when I click the link.

Question though (slightly off topic), IF they reclassify rifles bought as non-restricted to restricted do I have to get a restricted license? Grandfathered? ( I have no proof when I bought it from a sales receipt anymore, oops)? Grandfathered to keep it but can't take it out of the cabinet and use it?

"Grandfathering" is nothing more than deferred confiscation.
Admit nothing.
Deny everything.
Make counter accusations...

So you're with a citizen engaging nuclear proliferation in case a tyrannical government evolves.

My favorite new term is variant
It can't be found defined anywhere in any legislation but being a variant makes something prohibited or restricted
Begs the question of what is a variant and how do you prove it is a variant
Be professional and methodical. Take ownership of the situation. Look, listen and understand what is really being said and you will never have to walk away from an incident wondering if you missed something. Make every contact with the public count.

SVD Dragunov is a perfect example. Semi-auto only precision rifle, designed by a completely different person, using a totally different operating system, with zero interchangeable parts, in a completely different and incompatible cartridge, bears a very vague resemblance to an AK...if you squint...and know nothing about guns - banned as an "AK Variant"
